Community Capacity Building: Starting with People Not Projects.
Simpson, Lyn; Wood, Leanne; Daws, Leonie
Community Development Journal, v38 n4 p277-86 Oct 2003

The project's failure illustrates factors that inhibit community control: overstretched local resources, failure to understand impact on existing social infrastructure and social networks, and lack of community consultation.
